Oakland Integrated Healthcare Network
Request for Proposals: Rebranding Project
Doing Business As (DBA) Name, Tagline & Logo Design Work
November 3, 2016
Oakland Integrated Healthcare Network (OIHN) is seeking a public relations, marketing, or creative
design agency or individual to provide assistance with rebranding the young, nonprofit organization.
OIHN is pursuing a new Doing Business As (DBA) name, tagline, and logo, with supplemental color
scheme, to create a cohesive brand and human element to the organization. The project will be
completed in two phases: 1) DBA name options, with presentation to the Board of Directors, and 2)
Tagline development, logo/color scheme design.
OIHN’s current name is too similar to a competing health center within the local area and is too
complex, which creates challenges with creating a cohesive brand. In addition, the logo and color
scheme have created their own complications with printing, promotional materials, and other
elements. OIHN’s staff have completed the preliminary steps involved with researching and
surveying community partners, the Board of Directors, patients, and staff to understand exactly how
its stakeholders feel about the organization, mission and vision for the future, and the services
provided. Based off of the research, staff compiled a list of potential DBA name options to receive
feedback on with the Board of Directors. After presenting the options and receiving feedback, a new
direction and sense of options needs to occur to move the project forward. OIHN plans to partner
with the agency/individual to present three final and concrete options to the Board that are based
off of the feedback and research.
Phase one of the project will need to be expedited due to the deadline with the Board of Directors.
The DBA name options will need to be presented to the Board at the February 22, 2017 meeting.
Phase two, upon acceptance of name from the Board of Directors, will need to be completed by
April 26, 2017.
OIHN is a community-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established to provide comprehensive
integrated primary, behavioral health, and dental care services to underserved populations. OIHN is
the largest Federally-Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in Oakland County, specifically Pontiac,
Waterford and Southfield. OIHN was established as a nonprofit and became operational four years
ago with the support of multiple community organizations and has grown to see over 15,000
patients across seven service delivery sites.

Phase Two of the project will begin after completion and approval from the Board of Directors
